nightclubs in san francisco. in recent months, there have been requests made of us and by the entertainment industry and nightclub owners in to consider security measures in and around our parking lots, particularly those that are close to nightclub venues. over the last few days, there was another incident of violence that occurred in those spaces. the legislation that supervisor wiener and i are introducing would require all parking lots to have a security plan. for those who are within 1,000 feet of an entertainment permit, to ensure that there is adequate lighting, to ensure that exits and entrances are properly maintained, and to ensure that there is security during the hours of operation of these lots and into the wee hours of the morning, which is where these incidences of violence take place. i want to thank supervisor wiener for his work on this issue and look for to his consideration. supervisor campos: thank you. colleagues, as i noted earlier, i will be introducing an ordinance that will require that meetings of the san francisco ethics commission be televised. i look forward to

to avoid using non-recurring revenues to support ongoing expenses, because when the nonrecurring revenue falls away, it leads to potential program disruptions for the ongoing expenses supported by that revenue. the legislation specifically defines certain revenue types of nonrecurring, so we tried to be very tailored here in the definition we brought forward. it specifically defines the sale of assets, prepayments of multi-year revenue contracts, or abnormally high fund balance as non-recurring revenues, and it stipulates that those revenues can only be spent on nonrecurring expenditures. to make sure we keep that alignment of ongoing expenditures supported by ongoing revenues one-time or non-recurring expenses. the legislation specifically outlines a series of eligible nonrecurring uses or expenditures that would be eligible -- things like the development of affordable housing, investment in infrastructure or i.t., funding of reserves, or a couple of other things. the new legislation leaves open additional definition of nonrecurring expenditures as certified by our office for circumstan
